There’s this whole world crafty conferences that I didn’t know about, including the Midwest Craft Con and Craftcation.
Both combine how-to business workshops with hands-on making and are also intended to be a retreat or vacation.
Craftcation is held in April in Ventura, California
Midwest CraftCon has so far been held in Februaries in the Columbus, Ohio area but may be consider a new location in the Midwest for the next conference in 2020.
I went to Midwest Craft Con a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it – you can see some of my photos from it on Instagram.
My quick summary is that it was useful, super friendly and fun.
Here’s a write up of the conference in Harness Magazine.
Which one to attend? Probably either one would be delightful, whichever one is closer to you.
Organizers of both have been interviewed on podcasts, so you can search for those if you want even more of the backstory!
